PUSD Surveys vs. Fundraiser

It also looks like CSR in 9th grade was not as important as the administration says. The parents rating it significant and moderate are about the same percentage as those rating no impact or little impact.
So how does PUSD make the decision to keep certain programs and do fundraising for others? The letter received states the fundraising priorities are based on the surveys but it does not look that way when you look at the results.
For elementaries, Science and PE specialists were highly rated but Music (vocal) was not rated important at all (although Instrumental music was rated more important than the music specialist)
The programs funded through concessions as well as the fundraising priorities do not necessarily reflect the wishes of the community that took the surveys.
Why is that? Why did the district waste people's time and pretended to take into account the surveys?
